Topeka, my ass.

Among a few decent April Fool's pranks, such as YouTube's TEXTp option (pick TEXTp as resolution for any YT video and see typography magic happen! It won't work on the Shoe Fairy clip, though.), and people trying to spread the fake "NPH as Riddler in the next Batman movie" poster as a prank, when it has been around for weeks, I came across this obvious prank, which put a huge smile on my face for so many reasons.

Here is a hint:

The doctor is in!
Or should we say…the “ducktor”? Neil Patrick Harris, a.k.a. television’s Doogie Howser, has signed on to star in a live-action version of Disney’s Darkwing Duck. The family film focuses on Harris as Darkwing Duck balancing crime-fighting with raising his adopted daughter Gosalyn. The role of Gosalyn is reported to be down to Elle Fanning and Little Miss Sunshine’s Abigail Breslin. Strong DVD sales of the popular ‘90s animated series led the studio to fast-track the project. Disney is keen on securing NPH’s How I Met Your Mother co-star Jason Segel to play Launchpad, Darkwing’s klutzy sidekick.

Not only was Darkwing Duck one of my favourite cartoons ever (and I hate that the DVD release never got an EU date!), for some of the oddest reasons, I could actually see Neil playing a human version of Drake and Jason as Launchpad. ESPECIALLY Jason as Launchpad?! I mean, come on! (There is an artist on devArt, who still does great DWD fanart; and her human character of Drake actually looks like Neil!)

Let's ignore that it would probably be one of the worst film ideas ever — this just makes my heart all warm and fuzzy. And if I had time, I'd create a fake movie poster right now!

Neil could totally pull off purple.

And now, have a little rant about last night's Modern Family.

No idea how much Apple paid ABC for what was clearly an infommercial for the iPad, rather than a funny episode. Everything with Cam, Mitch, Gloria and Manny is entertaining, but… honestly? I find Phil annoying as hell, and the actor, who plays him, not even remotely funny. Everyone in the States seems to love him, though, but I just don't see it. What the show needs in order to stay interesting in its second season, is additional family members, which !!!!SPOILER!!!! will probably happen once they introduced Cam's family.

Gah! Why isn't Glee back yet? D8
